Welcome to Sportsmen’s Camp on the Web.
We would like you to consider Sportsmen’s Camp as a possible destination for your next wilderness fishing vacation to Northern Ontario.
Located in the midst of some of the finest Smallmouth Bass, Northern Pike, and Walleye fishing in the world, the camp is in an area of Ontario with small rolling granite ridges bordered by a vast array of small to medium sized lakes and river systems. Some of the small lakes have not seen a fisherman in 20 years and thus represent many unique fishing opportunities for the adventurous fisherman. The river systems also represent a wonderful opportunity for wilderness canoe trips spanning distances from 2 to 100 miles as well as fine walleye fishing.
If you have some questions and/or need some additional information please give us a call. Our accommodations aren’t motel-like, but everything works. If you’re looking for great fishing, great times, great friends, and great wilderness surroundings we might be the vacation home for you.
Sportsmen’s Camp is located on Firth Lake. The lake is about 6 miles long and about a mile wide in the center. The lake is a convenient size – it is small enough that lighter 14′ aluminum boats don’t encounter rough conditions yet large enough that you’ll see few other boats.
The camp, and its accommodations, are rustic and are primarily unchanged from the mid 1960’s. Almost all of our guests have been coming to the camp for more than 10 years. They say we run the camp as an institution (or is it we should be put in one?).
We are also definitely a pet friendly camp! Just check out Baxter’s picture on the heading. There are times of our summer when Janet informs me that there are more dogs in camp than people! All we ask is that you clean up after your pet and also take care of any unseen accidents as any conscientious pet owner would.
Sportsmen’s Camp is easily accessible by car. We are about seven and a half hours north of Toronto, about seventy-five miles West of Temiskaming Shores (formerly New Liskeard) and six miles west of Gowganda.
